New Spurs boss Mourinho returns to the Theatre of Dreams for the first time since being sacked by the Red Devils last year, and could come back to haunt his successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The Norwegian's position at United is reportedly hanging by a thread, with the 20-time EPL champions languishing in 10th place in the league standings, eight points shy of the UEFA Champions League qualification spots and 22 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

Solskjaer's task tonight will be made all the more difficult by the absence of star forward Anthony Martial, who has been ruled out of the match with a muscle injury, while Paul Pogba remains sidelined. 

At the other end of the pitch, the Lilywhites will be hoping to close ground on top four rivals Chelsea, and can climb up to fifth with a win over United. Mourinho will be without Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela, Ben Davies and Michel Vorm as the quartet recover from long-term injuries, but has no new concerns to contend with.
